    Well i was toying with the idea of going ls/vetc, but after some thought i think i may want to boost. This is my daily driver, so i dont want to push huge amounts of boost through it. So my question for all you boost guru's on the board is, I want to go boost as cheap as possible while still being reliable. So any suggestions on what i will need will be a great help.

    Thanks in advance.

    cheap and reliable really don't mix, but you can always start with a dsm turbo and build your junkyard kit from there.

    Well when i say cheap i dont mean putting it togeather with zip ties, and silly putty. But i would like to run a small amout of boost. What is involved with some of the junkyard setups you guys have run?

    you can build a cheap kit- just don't skimp on the fuel management side.

    im trying to do the same thing.... check the budget plan thread i started.... if you can find the stuff i did for the same prices , you could probably run 5-6psi for less than $1500
